Tyrese denies claims from estranged wife Samantha Lee Gibson amid divorce proceedings

Whew chile, TMZ is spilling more alleged details about Tyrese‘s ugly divorce from wife Samantha Lee Gibson

After announcing their divorce last week, the outlet obtained new court docs that reportedly indicate Samantha originally filed for divorce back in September after nearly four years of marriage. She alleges the Fast & Furiousactor cut her off financially and had locked her and their two-year-old daughter, Soraya, out of their home in Georgia. 

A few weeks before, Samantha “confronted” Tyrese during an “intense 3-hour conversation,” during which she allegedly threatened to call the police, according to TMZ. As a Black man, Tyrese said he left the home because he didn’t want to be involved with any type of police interaction due to “multiple public incidents involving police brutality and racially motivated killings of unarmed African American people.”

Tyrese has denied all claims but admitted to having an issue with Samantha’s demand for $20,000 a month in child support, suggesting the amount was “unreasonably high.”

Last month on Instagram, he thanked Samantha for helping him become “a better man of God, friend and father,” considering he wasn’t raised by the best example. 

“I’ve wrestled with this question. How can we naturally know how to BE something we were never raised by?” wrote Tyrese, referring to his own troubled upbringing. “Most of us were raised in broken homes with NO examples of what being a husband, wife or FATHER is. I repeat…. How can we naturally know how to BE something we were never raised by?”
